Thanks to the tools I needed for a college art class (Drawing to be exact), I'm able to draw a picture made almost entirely of charcoal. This character is Petunia of Happy Tree Friends, one of the few female characters of the show.
The foreground was made of charcoal pencils in general. For example, the eyes and teeth are from a white charcoal pencil and the outline was made from a soft charcoal pencil (though it was initially outlined in mechanical pencil). Furthermore, the background was made thoroughly from a black condensed charcoal stick, which filling the background with it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Even though this picture is drawn by mostly charcoal, the glow is the exception to this picture. Instead of grayscale-looking charcoal, the glow was made from a blue sharpie marker. Last thing I did was sign my name on the picture with a white charcoal pencil. I also used bar erasers, kneaded erasers, and a soft blue rag as materials to help with the picture.
Anyway, I hope the viewers may like this almost charcoal drawing.
